Novamid® ID1030 PA6/66 Nylon

1.75mm, 500g, Black

This open source filament material is a pure polyamide 6/ 66, and was originally developed many years ago by DSM Engineering Plastics experts for demanding specialty applications often subjected to harsh environment and high temperatures (up to 125ºC). Easily adjusted to 3D-print, Novamid® ID1030 filament brings a unique combination of properties, including outstanding stiffness and ductility, across a range of applications - from transportation, to sports and electronics. Their optimized crystallization profile improves fusion, enabling parts with excellent interlayer strength and high surface quality.

Novamid® ID1030 is well-suited for durable applications requiring good mechanical properties.

Novamid ID 1030 Print Settings

These settings are recommended by Formfutura and are meant as a starting point to help find your optimal print settings. They should work for most 3D printers; however, you may need to experiment outside these ranges. If you find settings that work better with your printer, feel free to let us know and we will be happy to post them.

Note: Enclosed Printer Needed. Intermediate experience required.

Nozzle Size: ≥ 0.25mm

Layer Height: ≥ 0.1mm *First layer: 100 - 150% of first layer thickness.

Flow Rate: ± 100%

Print Temp: ± 220 - 245°C *Novamid® can be used with a range of nozzle temperature. Preferred temperature to print your object is 230°C. To generate a homogeneous melt, the melt temperature should always be above 225°C . Optimal mechanical properties will be achieved at melt temperature between (225-245 °C).

Print Speed: Medium / High *Print speed: 50 - 100 mm/s (obeying the maximal throughput in cm3/s of the extruder). Print speed for "normal" nozzle size (0.4mm) and layer height (0.2mm), for other values print speed should be adjusted accordingly!

Retraction: Depends on printer type and filament diameter

Bed Temp: ± 60 - 120°C *Only remove printed object from print bed when print bed has cooled down to ambient temperatures, as otherwise printed part can deform severely.

Fan Speed: 0%

Surface: PEI Sheet + DimaFix

Heated Build Chamber: Preferred 

Enclosed Printer: Necessary

Storage and Conditioning Process

In order to prevent moisture pick up and contamination, packaging should be kept closed and undamaged. For the same reason, partially used bags should be sealed before re-storage.

Allow the material that has been stored elsewhere to adapt to the temperature in the processing room while keeping the bag closed. To prevent moisture condensing on filaments, bring cold filaments up to ambient temperature in the print shop while keeping the packaging closed.

In case the filament becomes wet, it should be dried at 80°C for at least 4hrs.

When storing the filament after printing, it is advised to seal the bag and add silica gel to the bag to keep the filament as dry as possible.
